NextGen Shoals,... and the sponsors of the mayoral debate did a fantastic job in putting on a first class event for the four cities that make up the Shoals area. Mayoral candidates from Florence, Tuscumbia along with the unopposed candidates from Muscle Shoals and Sheffield were allowed to voice their concerns and provide their opinions on what needs to be done in the cities they would lead for the next four years. If you haven't heard of NextGen Shoals be sure and click like on the facebook page Click Here!! to keep up with future events. The debate was streamed online and that is how I viewed the event. I was very impressed with the way things were handled from both NextGen and the candidates. It was a very informative program.
I also was very impressed with Susan Goode and how she handled herself and with the answers she gave. If there was a winner in the event from the Florence side of the debate, it was Susan. I spoke with her back in April and was impressed with her ideas then and she did nothing but solidify herself to me as the best candidate for the job. She will make a great mayor.
Thank you again to NextGen Shoals for the event and thank you to the sponsors, UNA, KISS FM 102.7, Genghis Grill and the Shoals Chamber of Commerce. Nice job.
